Flappie AI Cat Door Won’t Let Your Pet Bring Dead Animals Inside

Flappie AI Cat Door Won’t Let Your Pet Bring Dead Animals Inside

Flappie AI Cat Door CES 2024
We have seen the future of pet doors, and it’s this Flappie AI cat door. That’s right, it utilizes artificial intelligence to recognize various objects, such as birds or mice, that cats may bring home as prey. If these objects are detected, the flap remains closed and prevents your pet from bringing the prey into the house.



Flappie will not open as long as the cat wants to enter with prey. However, as soon as the cat tries to enter without prey, it’s automatically let in. Most importantly, Flappie can be used with more than one cat, so you’ll never have to buy additional hardware. It blocks access from foreign cats using a built-in microchip reader. There’s no word yet on US availability, but the company did state they plan on selling the unit for $399 USD or $199 with a 2-year, $8.90 monthly subscription.

The mouse detection algorithm used in Flappie is extremely accurate and reliable. The algorithm is continuously trained and updated with new data to improve its accuracy and ensure that it can detect mice with high accuracy and minimal false alarms,” said Flappie.

YouTuber Mark Rober Creates 9-Part Underwater Obstacle Course for Pet Octopus

Mark Rober Underwater Obstacle Course Maze Octopus
Mark Rober’s 250-foot elephant toothpaste volcano was a sight to behold, but once set in motion, the experiment concluded far too quickly. His latest project was creating a 9-part underwater obstacle course for his pet octopus that was a bit more complicated.



In research experiments, octopuses have been observed solving mazes and completing complex tasks to get food rewards. They’re also surprisingly skilled at getting themselves in and out of containers. Mark Rober decided to give his pet octopus a few easy challenges first before moving onto the 9-part obstacle course, complete with a golden vault filled with 3-pounds of shrimp at the end of it. Getting her into the obstacle course required releasing the scent of raw fresh shrimp.
